We now run our districts largest fundraiser - a student-run film festival in Oscar format with red carpet and industry professional judges. Some of our content can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLG9_p_f8vmch2QbwzB8qjg/videos
The presentation will be media-interactive in the sense that both presenters will be presenting alongside their digital (green-screened-self). The content will range from student-centered film festivals, snow day videos, and asynchronous video PD for parents and teachers. The presentation will total 30 minutes - 5 for an introduction and then 4 - 5 minute segments on each of the instructional practices. The last 5 will be used for summation and empowering others to reflect.
